COMMUNITY FORESTRY MANAGEMENT PLAN

Trees in Holland Township contribute importantly to our quality of life. The town has over 7224 acres classified as forest resource, as well many road side and public trees. This plan establishes a five year plan to care for this environmental treasure.
This plan was funded by a state grant. Significant grants are available for plan programs. Money comes from “Treasure Our Trees” license plates, state and federal sources. Click HERE to read more
If you have questions or would like to participate in the plan, speak to an Environmental Commission member.

2017 STORMWATER COMMITTEE:

Michael Keady
Rick Schrack
Secretary: Maria Elena Jennette Kozak

The Holland Township Environmental Commission (EC) and the Hunterdon Land Trust (HLT) recently collaborated on an effort to blaze/color-code trails on approximately 150 acres of preserved land in the Township. The properties are located between Shire Rd. and Andersen Rd., and can be accessed at the Green Acres/“Thomas Saeger Preserve” signs between 150 and 200 Shire Rd—Map shown below.

The network of trails was created, and is maintained, by the Jersey Off-Road Biking Association (JORBA) in cooperation with the HLT. The public is invited to visit the preserved properties and to hike the trails. Just be certain to dress appropriately, and to be careful as you enjoy these unspoiled pieces of our township.
